fact, the three are linked more closely than you realise. Many artists
create decorative insect art but have you ever looked closely at an
insect? If you do, you will notice that one side of its body is an exact
reflection of the other side. Insects have bilateral symmetry; this
means they have two sides the same! Bees, ants, beetles all have
bilateral symmetry. Can you think of any others?
this activity you will discover the maths behind making beautiful
symmetrical insects as you create your own piece of insect art. You will
explore and discover some of the amazing creatures we share our world
with and consider how to protect the natural environment around us.
Free fun for all the family – just enthusiasm needed!
